** Study Mathematics Degrees **

Mathematics plays a role in everybody’s life, in one way or another. For most people, this can include calculating monthly bills, budgeting, or shopping for food and house supplies. For some people, they want to take the subject to a higher level, applying mathematics to their academic and professional pursuits. With a focus on logical thinking, you will be able to use mathematics to solve problems and make discoveries.

An undergraduate degree in mathematics will give you a good foundation of knowledge on the area. You will study modules on pure and applied mathematics, computational mathematics, statistics, and operational research. These modules will make sure that you have holistically developed your knowledge and skills, preparing you for your future career.

Your degree will be delivered in a mixture of modes. These will include lectures and seminars, as well as computer laboratory sessions.

Depending on where you choose to study, you may be able to specialise towards the end of your degree. This specialisation can influence the area in which you choose to work after you have graduated. Common specialisations include:

- Fluid Dynamics
- Mathematical Mechanics
- Geometry
- Probability
- Algebra

If your degree requires you to write a dissertation in your final year, this will give you the opportunity to further explore a favoured area of mathematics.

The accreditation of your degree will depend on where you choose to study. It will also be influenced by the content of your course. Typically, you can expect to be awarded a Bachelor of Science (BSc), or a Bachelor of the Arts (BA). Some universities might offer an integrated Master of Mathematics (MMath). Check with your institution if this is something that they offer.

Generally, an undergraduate degree in mathematics will take three to four years to complete. Foundation degrees, diplomas and certificates can last up to two years, when studied full-time.

Once you have successfully completed your degree, you can choose to either seek employment in your chosen area, or further your studies. Continuation of your degree might come in the form of a postgraduate degree, such as a masters or PhD, or a graduate diploma or certificate.

Mathematics graduates will find that there are many career opportunities available to them. You will be able to choose to work in a variety of fields, as many different areas require high level mathematics skills. You might work in business and finance, as an analyst or broker, or you might choose to work in information technology or marketing. You will have gained a wide range of transferable skills throughout your degree, and these will be useful in whatever career you choose. Skills gained will include problem solving, analytical thinking, data collection and analysis, and data interpretation.
